Scary emu!

Emu! Emu!
The guide gave us some ice-cream cones full of grain, and said if we would wait quietly, a kangaroo might come up to us for a nibble. Sure enough, one did. Or maybe it was a wallaby, I can't really tell. I gently patted the roo or whatever for a few minutes while it tentatively nibbled the cone. Suddenly, this big giant ostrich-like bird with a huge beak ran up and chased the kangaroo away. This bird was taller than me! It shoved me back, grabbed the cone from my hand, and ran off. The guide said that this was a local emu known as "Ned Kelly", who had become excessively comfortable around humans.
